The Change To Mississippi DUI Laws

In 2013, the Mississippi Legislature drafted a series of laws that showed just how serious an offense drinking and driving is. The laws, which went into effect in 2014, enforced stricter penalties for those accused of driving under the influence, such as:

  • The completion of an alcohol safety program for first-time offenders
  • Ignition interlock licenses and devices for first-time offenders
  • Harsh driving restrictions for those convicted of multiple offenses
  • An administrative suspension of driving privileges for a DUI test refusal
  • Harsh penalties for minors who violate the state's zero tolerance law

DUI convictions can stay with you for years down the road, affecting your driving privileges as well as certain aspects of your life. These charges need to be taken seriously and addressed immediately.
